Specifically - when there is no data in the compound object, the 
abstract page still displays the table-headings - so you end up with a 
1-row table, showing no data

I want to replace that table with some helpful text :)

I've just tried the <epc:choose> - no difference

(and I chose "creator" as my compound field is a bespoke one.... the 
compound field 'broker' could just confuse people un-necessarily)
